    What's worse about the SCCY than the PF-9 ?

    From the short amount of reviews that I've read, the Gen 1 pistols from SCCY were crap, but the Gen 2 are okay. Cheap quality but cheap price, so it's not really a bargain but you get what you pay for.

    I don't have any personal experience, but especially with the finger grooves on the SCCY I'd prefer a Kel-Tec. If you have the funds available, Glock or S&W is probably a better option, but if you need something cheap I don't think the SCCY would be a bad choice.

    Since KelTecs ain't expensive to begin with, this is a situation where I'd go with the better known company that has a reputation for taking care of their customers.

    The SCCY is more closely akin to the P11 than the PF9.

    OH, and SCCY (which got sued and lost for violating SKKY vodka's TM or copy right)
    had a policy of spamming FAKE reviews that were tracked to the Corporate IP on this and MANY other forums, which left a bad taste, of having the president and VP trashing KT (were they were previously employed) and touting this "great new product" claiming to be 'in no way affiliated with this company'
    AND violating pretty much EVERY gun forums commercial use policy.

    Reportedly - bits falling off randomly. There have been prior threads here on this, in case anyone is interested enough in the topic to do a search.

    It's my understanding that the CEO that was involved with the "false reviews" is long gone. I've also heard that their support and product is much, much better than previous.

    My brother has a SCCY 9mm. The slide keeps cracking! He has sent it back to them 3-4 times each time it would crack again with light use with standard 9mm target loads. When it comes back this last time it will stay in a drawer and not get used except emergencies.

    He's been thinking about getting a Glock like his older wiser brother. ;-)

    I have 200 rounds through a Gen 2 with 0 malfunctions and pretty accurate and easy to shoot. I think it is a Kel Tec P11 clone with better quality. I will not shoot it as a range gun, so I expect its life to be under 1000 total rounds for me, that's all I expect, it's not a Glock! My intended use is an under the seat car gun and if it ever gets stolen Im only out 250 bucks.

    ^^^^ How about the fact that you let a criminal get his hands on a handgun!! $250 is nothing compared to the fact that you may be an accomplice to a murder, rape etc.

    Secure your weapon.

    I looked at both models today.

    Exterior workmanship is very good,

    Exterior finish was flawless.

    Lifetime warranty follows the gun, not the owner.

    Well under $300.00.

    Gun Tests liked it and gave it a B-.

    Seriously! I thought this was a gun performance thread not a storage technique thread. I lock my car, what else can I do. Havn't had one stolen in 30 years.

    A guy I used to know had a first gen model. Only issue was that if you grip it the wrong way your hand flips the safety on with recoil. Otherwise it worked fine.

    That said I know firsthand that Kel Tec pistols are decent guns. The P40 I have has been problem free for 2500 rounds.

    Oh, please. Burglarize a vehicle, steal a gun, commit a crime with it, and it's the owner's fault? And the owner even becomes an accomplice!? :what:

    Let's see; where have we heard that before?

    Oh, yeah, just about every left-wing liberal politician and media source out there..

    Saying "oh the liberals say that" doesn't excuse ignorance or foolishness.
    Do you lock your guns up in your home? 2500 cars are stolen every day, not to mention the 1000's of breakins every day.
    A car is not a very secure place at all.

    I'm not talking about being a criminal accomplice but a moral one. I don't want to live with the fact that I was careless with my gun and a crime was committed with it.

    The fact that any lock or safe can be defeated means that no matter what you do, you're vulnerable to theft. There is an advantage to keeping the gun out of sight but with easy access.

    The fact that guns can easily be had by a criminal without stealing my guns means I do not feel responsible if they do. I do think it is responsible to at least hide them.
